considerations for developing a land use policy framework to guide the decision making process for current and future uses of sfpuc properties. the land use policy framework will be brought to the commission for consideration before the close of 2011. president vietor: hello. >> hello, good afternoon. deputy general manager. i have a few slides prepared. i would like to kind of go through those. but this is a workshop, so you can stop at any time to ask questions. i like the analogy that we are trying to do something because we do not want to bring something back half baked. you will see a lot of the ingredients during the presentation, and hopefully that will stimulate some discussion with you. we're going to look at a couple of different things. one is the puc property types. we're focusing today a lot inside san francisco, because there is a lot of property outside san francisco. you have right of ways outside san francisco. there are a lot of policies in place for those properties outside of san francisco. but it could be much more comprehensive than that they are today. there's a diff
moran: it does strike me as the easiest to use. how do you go outside of policy and be true to the policy itself? >> i think that is right. i think we could come up with at least as strong man of some general principles and some values related to that, which might include something like public benefit, so that this really stays a surplus question. this is integrated into the property. this is a core value that we hold. there are city ordinances that we need to comply with. the reason we have gone into this space is that there was an executive order. there was a mayor's directive. there are other pieces. cca, i do not know where that will go. but as part of the build up, it may be important to look as part of energy generation. maybe there is a sidebar to our principles and values that say that these values also need to come into play, short of doing too much of the rubric of methodology, but it is something that we are keeping track of, and i would like this to be a framework overall it will not be horribly difficult, but it is true. >> you have given us a lot of information
on behalf of the new mission theater, a few blocks on 21st. we are looking at a few different uses, a few different uses for that theater. hopefully the ultimate adaptive reuse will be supportive. this is for the multi-screen theater, with a large cultural entertainment facility or a combination of the culture -- for the movie screen use and the different things that we are looking at would bring up to 100 more jobs for the community. this is a very important revitalization project for the mission, and i will be working with supervisor campos and supervisor kim on that legislation. we have met with the planning department and some of them have come to see the theater to look at the different options, and i am here to support the motion going forward and just to say hello, so you know that we will be back before you before too long. thank you so much. >> the next speaker? >> your theater will thrill me in the night make the item turn on the beverage and alcoholic alright you're fighting for your beverage license in the night creatures come out on the theater you'll be scared like you shoul

candidates that spoke a while ago, we're all very happy to hear that you are with us, the seniors of the city of san francisco. fellow seniors, what can you say to them? we're going to be very thankful to all our leaders. well, i am -- [unintelligible] i was born and raised in the philippines, and i am 86 years old. [cheers and applause] i have been attending stepping stone health care in a san francisco for two years. i was sad after my husband passed away. my sister was living with me. and i noticed the people attending adult day health care on the other side of the building. i saw people exercise and interacting together. i talked with my fellow seniors in my building and the social worker about adult day health care. the social worker came to my home, interviewed me, and found out about my sadness, osteoporosis, and other things. she said i could start soon. adult day health care helped me to feel less depressed, meet new people, and to exercise and feel better about myself. thank you to the health center and to be staff for accommodating the seniors. i think i was able to live longer bec
as well as for profit organizations. some are partnering with us to raise $25 million for the initiative. what got us here? about five years ago, we looked at the public housing portfolio and realize to bring it up to the point where people cannot live in affordable, decent housing it was going to take a certain amount of money to do that. this was at a time when the housing organization was operating at about 80% of its bubble. it was not operating at the level it needed to in terms of funding. that was unacceptable to us. we decided i would cannot depend on the federal government to do that, we would launch hope sf. that is how we got here. we are serving families that are dealing with some of the most challenging social issues that exist. we took guidance from a seven corners study. if there are seven corners of san francisco that has the largest concentration of folks that interact with their system. four of those are run public housing. it was the confluence of all of those factors that we need to do something. housing is one of our top priorities. we were able to do hope sf and cre

[cheers and applause] i will tell you that today i have a joyous heart, and i am very grateful to the mayor of san francisco. and i really want you to join me and welcome him for his announcements to you, mayor ed lee.

occupancy would comply with that. we would also have to build land use plans for following procedures for competitive solicitation if we are going to have a master tenant or master developer. these are best practices that are laid out, both in terms of competing defined master tenants and developers, but also other policies and procedures at the port and city have put into place, involving competitive building, bidding for retail opportunities on the port -- even if it is just a restaurant. there is the recently passed maritime preservation policy. to designate as a maritime facility, we have to keep maritime uses. those are some of the overall policies. i also want to say, if we are in a master development situation and uses here contemplated are not the historic uses, there would have to be an environmental clearance process. this could be either some sort of a cursory review to say that it performs, or a more elaborate ceqa compliance document. as we go through that process we have to take into consideration issues about historic preservation. pier 38 is part of the emba
. >> that used to be a freeway? >> yes. lots of things he can do. president vietor: another interesting thing is this temporary use. there are things that are not active, and it may be an opportunity to do this. there are a lot of partners out there, farmers who are out there who could come in for one month or six months or two years until we make a decision and come in and formant and creates a benefit to the community as an interim step. that might be something we want to consider as part of the policy. >> we are trying to provide a good example of how that can work, the transition. we are really excited about continuing to get to do cool things. president vietor: thank you. >> good afternoon, the commissioners. my name is e. coli. i am a manager. -- my name is eli. we look forward to engaging with you on these proposals. we will forward to looking over the proposal, and hopefully i will have more to say in terms of our position on it, but i think it is an exciting step to consider these things, so thank you very much. president vietor: thank you, and it is interesting that your group has s
. and it happened. they were all telling us that we had really turned around their opinion of san francisco. we do have a quirky reputation. which is being nice. but we have really turned around that reputation. i think that our city fathers, the people that run the city, are in a better position to do that. i think is very important to understand -- is not nice to talk about money, but it is important to understand the economic impact that the port has on the city. we had over 1.2 million visitors. we cannot really quantify it. what i can tell you is that we had over 20,000 human beings boarding our ships on saturday and sunday. 20,000. 13,000 alone boarded 32. we had 14 ships coming in this year, one of the biggest we have had in the city. and out of camera from florida, appointed by the central government, one of the things that we chatted with him about it is -- you will respect what the city, the county, in court what you to do. you will hire local vendors. we said it was a non-negotiable issue. we cannot force you, but we really encourage you. we all think about the money spent on hotels, re

[laughter] thank you very much. software version: 3.0c ++ >> thank you all for joining our wonderful san francisco symphony. and of course, what with the mayor do without issuing the official proclamation? on behalf of our great city, i would love to present in honor of not only the 100 years, but the grammys, oscars, the wonderful quality of work that the symphony has been involved in, to honor them on this day, to resign from our protocol officer the official proclamation presented to michael. declaring this to be san francisco symphony in day in san francisco.

of the day, stuff goes downhill. it is on you to make sure that you use promoters the to contrast and the to manage, essentially. it is a partnership. hopefully not -- here is the key, i will be going home to my dog now. you have got to work with these promoters. at the end of the day, the same consequences are going to hold. >> [inaudible] >> i understand. >> [inaudible] >> right. it would be great if it was like yelp for promoters. unfortunately, we are just not going to be able to do that. more than legal reasons, we cannot put in the place of liability. that just will not happen. i will encourage you guys to make one up on your own. i will take one more question and then move along. >> [inaudible] >> to go back to that. go back one more. one more. i suppose that we just, if you are asking about places i have worked, ok. i will ask. i have got the hook. i will move on [laughter] -- i will move on. [laughter] how're you doing? are you awake? ok. this is exciting for us. for me, anyway. we started the entertainment commission in 2003. the police were issuing permits forever and e

in iran, if it actually uses its bully pulpit to challenge the regime, to challenge the regime on its internal oppression it actually can encourage change and reinforces to the people inside, psychologically. when we don't do that, i think we send signals to the regime that we don't really care. some iranian diplomats who have defected have made it crystal clear to folks that when they would write their tables back home and around the americans and europeans would come and see them and to talk about only one thing. they would talk about the nuclear program. so what do those diplomats right back home? they'll care about anything else. that's a mistake. >> the thing i would add is we know how to do this propaganda. we have a history, of having to effectively. we did it somewhat effectively countering the soviet union propaganda but it does take, it does take authorities. it takes resources. and perseverance to do it. >> may i suggest it easier these days because of social networking to be even more effective. >> very much so. in my statement i said we certainly should be targeting iran

between law enforcement and the community, which is absolutely essential to keeping us safer. it is very important that we take that very seriously. unfortunately, in the current office, we have a situation where the former police chief has become the district attorney, which is simply a walking conflict of interest. that has never happened before not only in the history of san francisco, but in the history of our country. it is not george's fault. anyone in that position would have conflicts of interest. but the problem that did happen is we have allegations of officers doing illegal searches and then lying about it. officers are innocent until proven guilty, but george was chief at the time, and he cannot fairly investigate this case is. he has not recused himself. he does not have a conflict of interest policy. i will have a strong conflict of interest policy and surely allocate conflicts of interest. >> the reason that police officers can come and live is again the way we asked them to investigate. we asked them to go into an investigation and interact with the criminal element and c
's a similar scene in forestville. fox5's sherri ly joining us with more. i guess we should stress these were preplanned. >> reporter: that's right. purely coincidence, tony. kind of ironic, though, that there is snow in the forecast. but here in prince george's county, not enough to plow through. but they are ready. we have the salt domes full. plows were out today hitting the streets to make sure they are ready when a real snowstorm hits. this morning's drill started around 4:00 a.m., about 200 snow plows went out, practicing their routes and testing equipment. the drill done the last friday every october, also allows them to spot pot holes and other problems early. this year prince george's county has added a gps system to all of its snow plows so they can tell which streets have been plowed and allocate their resources. inspectors will also have cameras in their cars to capture pictures of road conditions. if you saw a snow plow this morning, don't panic, no need to run to the store for toilet paper and bread. >> anybody give you funny looks this morning? >> you know they did. they want t
